     A remarkable day with arrival of Cobell checks

    S.E. Ruckman reflects on the arrival of the final checks from the $3.4 billion Cobell trust fund settlement:
    One of my relatives had texted me that she got her Cobell check on the same day the Scots were voting to secede from the United Kingdom. Now, for anyone who has been in the upper atmosphere on a space station the past four years, final payments went out on a class action lawsuit brought against the federal government for fiduciary negligence on past Native royalty payments.

     Nottawaseppi Huron Band reopens casino after electrical fire

    An electrical fire and, later, a power outage prompted an evacuation of the casino owned by the Nottawaseppi Huron Band of Potawatomi Indians in Michigan.
    The fire occurred away from the gaming floor at the FireKeepers Casino and was quickly extinguished. But the tribe evacuated about 350 customers and employees out of caution around 7pm on Saturday.
